Indian women prefer more flexibility at workplace, says LinkedIn survey
Professional networking site LinkedIn's survey released today said that 94 per cent of Indian women felt that they have led a successful career.
"A majority of women (63 per cent) worldwide define professional success as having the right balance between work and personal life and nearly three quarters of women (74 per cent) believe they can have it all," the study titled 'What Women Want @ Work' said.
Going by the findings, Indian women with more than six years of experience feel more satisfied with their professional lives as compared to those with lesser experience.
"This is tempered by the finding that one in three Indian women say that they have faced sexism at the workplace which is by far the highest across all countries surveyed," it added.
As many as 85 per cent of Indian working women would like greater flexibility within the workplace. Flexible work environment and leadership opportunities trumpeted as two of the most important factors in determining the success of the next generation of Indian professional women, the report said.
However, around 43 per cent of the respondents said that they would never leave their jobs to become stay-at-home moms.
The findings are based on a survey of more than 5,000 working women across 13 countries including India. LinkedIn partnered with Cross-Tab
